Beverly Hills Dysport Injections
The Kopelson Clinic has pure Beverly Hills Dysport Injections that are both fast acting and long lasting. Our Beverly Hills Dysport Injections are a great choice those that are in search of an effective way to fade fine lines and wrinkles. One of the first places that aging can be seen is in the face and neck area. These changes can really make a dramatic impact on the overall appearance of someone’s face. Thankfully there are now non-surgical facelifts and injectable procedures that can successfully put an end to wrinkles and crow’s feet.
Beverly Hills Dysport is injected directly into the facial muscles to temporarily immobilize them. Dysport Injections are especially effective for the the glabellar muscles, the muscles that form the creases and wrinkles on your forehead when you frown. Dysport is in the category of cosmetic injectables called “toxins.” While the word “toxin” may technically be the correct word to use, it often frightens patients away from a very safe, effective, elegant and undetectable treatment that ultimately brings desirable results.
Dysport is a neurotoxin that works by blocking the communication between nerve and muscle. Normally, the nerve “speaks” to the muscle and tells it to contract. This communication is present and critical for movement of all muscles in the body. The upper face is unique in that movement is not vital for function. We can use this principle to weaken the muscles of the upper face in order to decrease wrinkles without affecting function.
The Kopelson Clinic | Beverly Hills Dysport Injections
Our Beverly Hills Dysport and Botox are both composed of botulinum toxin A which inhibits the communication between nerves and muscles, resulting in the relaxation of the muscle and the disappearance of skin lines. Dysport was approved for cosmetic use in 2009 and has provided us with an alternative to Botox. On the average, Dysport is less expensive than Botox.Dr. Kopelson and Dr. Feldman have performed thousands of Dysport treatments and use only the purest, safest form of the injectable. You won’t find watered-down versions of Dysport typically used at day spas here, as diluted versions are not only less effective, they also can pose a risk for serious complications. When you work with The Kopelson Clinic for botox for migraines or wrinkles, you can rest easy knowing you’re receiving high-quality Beverly Hills Dysport injections from experienced, board-certified dermatologists.
Treat Wrinkles Without Surgery
Whether treating vertical lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines on the forehead, “crow’s feet” around the eyes, “smoker’s lines” on the upper lip, vertical or horizontal bands on the neck, or producing the so-called “non-surgical brow lift,” or turning up a droopy corner of the mouth. Dysport treatment has helped many patients avoid or postpone unnecessary plastic surgery.

Where and When is Beverly Hills Dysport Used?
Dysport is most commonly used to treat vertical lines in between the eyebrows that often make people look perpetually angry. Dysport, as Botox, will create a more relaxed look. Dysport is also an appropriate treatment for horizontal forehead lines as well as for crow’s feet.
The results of our Dysport injections in Beverly Hills may be very similar to that of Botox. However, the onset of action of Dysport is often faster than with Botox and in some individuals, Dysport may last longer than Botox. In some patients, Dysport’s effect trails off more slowly at the edges of the area treated, leaving a very natural appearance, smooth complexion, and no obvious zone of non-treatment. In the hands of an inexperienced injector Dysport may leave an obvious zone of treated area vs. untreated, resulting in a line of demarcation and an unnatural look.
How is Dysport Different from Botox?
Both are derived from botulinum toxin A. The molecule in each brand is altered slightly and this alteration is responsible for the differences between Dysport and Botox. The differences vary from patient to patient; sometimes pronounced, sometimes ambiguous. One cannot predict what the difference might be in a particular patient. Therefore, the doctor may choose to try Dysport in a patient that has had Botox before to see if it might produce a more elegant look or a look that is longer lasting. Similarly, in a patient that has never had Botox, both substances might be tried at different times in order to see if a difference is notable in that particular patient. Dysport may disperse over a greater distance which could be beneficial or deleterious. With a tendency to spread, Dysport’s effects might be quite natural: no cut-off point is seen between treated and untreated areas. When Botox is used however, the doctor with experience understands how to account for its lack of dispersion, by fanning the product out toward the edges of the area treated; but by maintaining control by using a product that does not disperse.
With increased diffusion, Dysport may NOT be a good choice. If the patient has heavy eyelids, for example, or uses their forehead to lift their brow in order to see well, or has a tendency toward excess skin on the upper eyelid, Dysport’s diffusion may cause the untoward reaction of droopiness of the eyelid(s) and Botox or another rejuvenative technique might be more beneficial. Dysport often has a more rapid effect than Botox. For patients that require fast results for an upcoming business meeting, event, or social engagement, Dysport may be chosen for its fast onset. Often, patients see results just two days after treatment instead of 7 days after treatment with Botox.
Is There a Recovery Period After Dysport Treatment?
As a rule, there is no downtime associated with Beverly Hills Dysport treatment and patients can continue with their daily routine immediately. Infrequently, as with any treatment that involves needles, bruising may occur. Usually, we can limit the bruising by using various methods developed over years of experience. This can be covered easily with makeup and we have nurses trained to help the patient choose the correct color of foundation in order to camouflage the infrequent bruising that we encounter.
How Much Does Dysport Cost?
The cost of Dysport depends on the area of treatment, the sex of the individual, the strength of the muscle and the severity of the problem to be treated. On the average though, Dysport costs less than Botox.
When administered by an experienced physician, side effects are rare and patients, in most cases, undergo treatment without incident. Physicians that have been trained extensively in the nerves and muscles of facial expression are Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons. A patient is certainly in safer hands when in the Dermatologist’s or Plastic Surgeon’s exam chair. Many people try to save money by going to a spa for treatments of this sort or even to a doctor’s office where the doctor is not the injector. As Dermatologists, Dr. Kopelson and Dr. Feldman do these treatments every day. The more patients seen, the more experience the injector has, the less untoward effects occur. Often, a patient will come in to see our doctors to correct problems they developed from receiving these treatments elsewhere, attempting to save money. We are more expensive; but we are more well trained.
Not all side effects can be fixed immediately, but our doctors can usually bring back a more normal look to the face. Possible side effects include headache, pain at the injection site, swelling, bruising, droopy eye, and puffy eyes.
